Abstract: The aim of the work is to develop a suitable method for the characterization of cavitation nuclei in cavitation channels and on ships. It explains why cavitation investigations in shipbuilding and especially the chracterization of cavitation nuclei are necessary. Aspects of light scattering, measurement errors and the essential analysis steps are described. A method for detection volume correction for the calculation of a corrected nuclei number concentration is presented. The HDNC technology is adapted for use in shipbuilding.
